Arabs throw rocks at tour bus and Jewish residence in East Jerusalem

In East Jerusalem, two Arab youths were arrested after they threw rocks at a tour bus, shattering one of its windows. Molotov cocktails were also thrown at Beit Yonatan (Jonathan House) in Silwan, a mostly Arab neighborhood near the Western Wall. Jonathan House is a seven story apartment building constructed on property purchased by Jews in 2002. In 2004, 11 Jewish families moved into the building. Jonathan House is named for Jonathan Pollard, the American navy officer who was imprisoned for passing along information to Israel that he perceived as vital to her security.
